Community Votes

Pathfinder was voted in as one of the finalists for Epicure’s 2018 Community Grant Initiative. This resulted in a win in the form of $2500 of in-kind donations from Epicure.

Voting took place online across Canada starting back on November 26 and finished up December 16, 2018. Pathfinder had been chosen to be a finalist by a selection committee out of dozens of organizations. Although Pathfinder didn’t win the grand prize of $25,000 in grants they did finish near the top resulting in the $2500 prize. When the final results were in, Ruth Lee the Executive Director of Pathfinder Youth Centre Society said “we were honored just to be among the dozens of finalists. This is fabulous news.”
